"How do we protect what we have?"
Presented by Tiffany Haworth, Executive Director, Dan River Basin Association

The next edition of the Virginia Museum of Natural History’s “2nd Thursday Science Talks” takes place Thursday, April 14 at 6 p.m., when Tiffany Haworth, executive director of the Dan River Basin Association, presents "How do we protect what we have?".  Admission to the presentation is free thanks to generous donations of all sizes to the VMNH Foundation Discovery Fund.

Our natural resources are vital to the survival and continuation of life on this planet. During this presentation, Tiffany Haworth will discuss conservation priorities and how they are determined, as well as what the current priorities in Virginia and the Dan River Basin are.

As executive director of the Dan River Basin Association (DRBA), Haworth leads the development and implementation of programs that protect and preserve the region's natural and cultural resources through education, recreation and stewardship.  She has received numerous national and regional awards for her communication and community initiatives.

The museum's "2nd Thursday Science Talks" take place on the second Thursday of each month through May 12, 2016 at the museum.  Attendance is free due to contributions to the VMNH Discovery Fund.  The presentations are delivered by VMNH curators, VMNH researchers, as well as VMNH research associates.  Geared towards audiences with a keen interest in science, the presentations also increase awareness of the varied and unique scientific career paths available for local students.

Date or time changes will be announced on the museum’s website at www.vmnh.net/science-talks
